The best experience I had.amazing tour . amazing views and so much fun
We all loved it. Very family friendly and crew were big help with getting pram off the boat. Food was great also. All people visiting the gold coast this is a must do.. Guide was funny also.
It was awesome day. We did seaplane tour with Pete. It was really awesome with bit of thrill too. Had time to do bit of kayaking too. And BBQ buffet was delicious with live music. The singer , who is also the captain of our boat, sang a birthday song for me :)). Island was really relaxing. It was a great sunny day too. Thanks to god, it rained only on our way back. Thanks to all staff. They were very enthusiastic and friendly. :)
What an awesome day. Yummy lunch, excellent staff. We all loved it. Thanks
A fantastic time on a gorgeous Island with a lot of different water-sports to choose from! The tour-guide/barman/chef/entertainer was awesome!! Highly recommend this tour for a fun-filled day with no disappointments!!
We had a lovely day on this trip. It was very relaxing, lunch was delicious and enjoyed the water activities available on the island. Only down fall was that we were a family on a day trip combined with a christmas party who were all very drunk, loud and rowdy. We felt very uncomfortable especially travelling back from the island as at this stage the drunken people were very drunk and loud and were dropping their alcohol all over the floor of the boat and having trashy conversations whilst we were trying to enjoy the serenity of the waters on the way home. A bit disappointed that families were combined with drunken fools not appropriate.
Had a great day, food was beautiful and staff were so friendly and really seemed to enjoy themselves which made everyone enjoy it more!
Good half day trip. Jumping on the speed boat that pulls up along side the catamaran was fun 20 I think. Lunch on the island was decent. We chose to walk to the beach on the ocean as the river side water was not that appealing. 15 min walk to get there and no flags so no technically no swimming allowed. We just put our feet in. No one else there and it was gorgeous. My daughter wanted to try paddle boarding but a couple took the only two paddle boards out and paddled off for quite a while. Three and a half stars.
A little short for my liking. Really good crew but you ended up being on the island for about 90-120 mins altogether. Should have been longer.
I have previously rated this trip as horrible!! Have sent off a complaint to the company and have so far received no response.
For the young and the drinkers was very boring lunch was very nice and plenty
Best thing about the tour was the boat ride. Tour guide was ok. Island was like stepping back in time... Sooooo dated! Food was terrible. I had the steak which was rubbery. Couscous salad had left-over sausage pieces. End of the time on the island couldn't come quick enough.
Would not recommend in winter
Perhaps it is better in summer but I'm not convinced
We felt that this trip was a waste of time. The staff were nice but all most all of the events once on the island are for the same time frame so limits what you can do once there. Lunch was very poor, ordered a drink took 20 mins to come lunch was over. There was an accident on the parasailing while we were there understand that accidents can happen, but they seemed like fish out of water on how to deal with it, also there was no staff on some attractions like canoe's people went out without life jackets no staff on the beach if people got in trouble staff would have no idea. Great trip but very poorly run. Would recommend to spend your money on other things to do around GC.
